⚡️ What is Zapier?

Zapier is the glue that lets you connect Avenue to hundreds of other web services. If you use other apps in your real estate business, odds are you can use Zapier to integrate your Avenue account with them. Automated connections called Zaps, set up in minutes with no coding, can automate your day-to-day tasks and build workflows between apps that otherwise wouldn't be possible.

Each Zap works in a single direction, with one app as the trigger (where your information comes from), which causes one or more actions in other apps. Zaps automate repetitive tasks in the background, so you can focus on more important work.

The first trigger we’ve created for this new Zapier integration is new leads coming in to your Avenue account. We’re looking to build new triggers, and want to hear from you about what we should do next!

Let us know what kind of workflows could help you optimize your work - the sky's the limit!

⚡️ Third Party CRMs

⚡️ Pricing

We recommend Zapier’s free plan to those who are just starting out, which will allow you to connect your accounts and create up to 5 Zaps or connections. If you think your Zaps will be triggered more than 100 times each month, consider upgrading to their Starter plan (CA$33.61 or US$24.99 monthly). This plan lets you have 20 Zaps or connections and increases your task count from 100 to 750. Moving up to the next plan guarantees you even more Zaps and tasks, as well as some advanced features. However, these are generally unnecessary for real estate businesses. Our advice: keep it simple!
